putting old stories to work

Posted by: Shona Husk
I used to write a lot of novellas for publishers that no longer exist. Novellas were where I learned how to write before moving onto novella. With the rights now returned to me I had to decided of I was going to republish and if I did how did I want to do it?

In the end I opted for a bundle (and maybe another one in the future). While I gave each novella a read through I didn't re-write. I have new stories to write and they are a marker of what I was like as a write back then (in the olden days before self publishing).

Tempted: a novella box set is four novella that I put together to show case some of the romance genres I write in. It's a mix of paranormal, fantasy and contemporary. While it's free at the moment I plan on making it 99c later.

As with everything in publishing it's a bit of an experiment.

Be tempted by some of the different worlds created by Shona Husk. This box set includes:
Brightwater Blood
What was supposed to be a simple intelligence gathering mission for the Shamanic Council becomes almost the last, day of were-lion Lachlan Garvey’s life. Lachlan must convince Dayna he didn’t kill her sister before he bleeds out and before the magical fire Dayna’s sister created with her failed spell reaches them and kills them both. Dayna must choose—trust Lachlan, and use magic to save them, or flee and live with the knowledge she caused his death, proving she is truly a Brightwater and incapable of love.

How to Breathe Fire
For as long as Camea can remember she has looked to the Stars and longed to explore the world beyond the island kingdom of Adar. When the witch announces Camea is to be the Fire God’s next bride she sees it as her chance to escape. Matai is no god. He was once a prince of Adar, now he is paying penance for seducing one of the Fire God’s witches. Once a year he gets a new bride and after a year less a day he must kill her, or Adar will be buried under a tide of lava. In the face of death she sees an alternative—one which could save them both, if Matai can trust his heart.

The Messy Maiden
The way to a man’s heart is with food, and the Messy Maiden has men eating out of her palm with her sexy videos mixing “girl next door” attitude with lingerie and dessert. Ian Walker discovered the Messy Maiden after his fiancĂ©e left—she decided his love of food was unnatural. He calls it a kink that he likes to indulge in occasionally. When a temp starts at his office he knows her voice. While he knows he shouldn’t tempt fate, he wants to get to know Saskia. When the truth is revealed things get messy.

The Changeling Soldier
After fleeing Annwyn three centuries ago, Ella built a life in the mortal world making gowns for European royalty and playing in mortal intrigues. Now those Courts are gone and she dresses Hollywood starlets. Mortals come and go, and she is always alone. She longs for the home she left behind. Isaac Norton is a returned soldier. Now home, he’s restless, and his reoccurring dream is becoming more frequent. Ella can give Isaac the answers he needs, but there will be a price to pay.
